Why did you choose Duke?
I choose Duke because it provides both academic and athletic excellence. Duke will give me an opportunity to be a student-athlete at one of the top university's in America. The social environment and high education standards will develop me into a young woman inside and outside of the classroom.

To be able to say that I am a member of the Duke Field Hockey Team is...
an honor. To play field hockey at a Division I level with outstanding teammates and a very talented coaching staff is a dream come true. It is an opportunity to continue my hockey game and join in on a new team bond and become part of the Duke family.

What is your most memorable field hockey moment?
Scoring the winning goal in double overtime of my senior year in the State Semi-Finals and being dog pilled by my teammates.
